Come In Good Spirits a solo show by Heath Wae
Heath Wae brings together a new body of work which explores the intersection between earth and spirit. ‘Come in Good Spirits’ acts to draw our attention to the nature of our thoughts and being, offering a suggestion to explore how one influences the other.
Earth pigments set the tone of the works, grounding them in rich hand-foraged ochres and mineral compounds. These earthly elements are an ode to the physical, tactile nature of our existence whilst the gestural marks, scrawls and poetics call us in to more cerebral realms. Together, a dance of mysticism and poetry weave their expressions across the surfaces, enacting as a subtle reminder of the depth in simplicity and the complex but not complicated nature of being.
Informed by ritual, ceremony and the subtle energetics of space, these new works call in the multiplicity of Wae’s life. Elemental forces, mytho-poetic writings and the gentle navigation of the environment arrange themselves on the surface of the works to create an homage to individual expression, a testament to the way we all perceive and weave our worlds.
